Water-main work may keep Uintah closed from 21st-30th through June
Local traffic is allowed, as the signage shows.
Started in mid-May, “the project features the replacement of 1,264 feet of 6-inch diameter, 1950s-era cast iron water main with 8-inch diameter PVC pipe,” Berry said. The new equipment will “improve service reliability in the area,” he added.
The work is occurring between 28th and 30th streets.
Asked why the closure covers nine blocks in all, a foreman at the project site said the city's plan is to divert traffic at more heavily traveled streets (21st and 30th). Berry added that this will help keep motorists from detouring through residential streets.
After the Uintah utility work is complete, concrete and paving work will follow under the city's 2C program. The 2C schedule calls for the paving of Uintah this year from Mesa Road to 30th Street.
